Ririn Ekawati (Foto: Radarcirebon)

ANAK-ANAK sering rewel di pesawat, baik akibat tekanan udara maupun turbulensi. Aktris cantik Ririn Ekawati punya cara biar anak tidak pernah rewel.

Fasilitas di pesawat ternyata membuat anak Ririn menjadi tenang dan tidak rewel seperti anak yang lain. Karena sang anak menikmati hiburan sehingga tidak berpikir tentang hal buruk di esawat.

“Anakku tidak rewel saat duduk di pesawat. Karena dia menikmati hiburan yang disediakan di pesawat, seperti nonton film,” kata Ririn kepada Okezone di Gedung Djakarta Theater XXI, Thamrin, Jakarta Pusat, Rabu 7 Januari 2015.

Hal tersebut membuat pemeran Salma dalam film ‘Di Balik 98’ ini merasa senang. Karena ia tidak repot mengatur dan meminta anaknya untuk tenang. Kepanikan anaknya masih dalam tahap wajar, sebab sang anak hanya minta Ririn memeganginya ketika pesawat mendarat.
“Paling di saat landing pesawatnya suka goyang-goyang, dia cuma minta pegangan tangan,” tutup Ririn.

I have had many nice hijab moments but I think the best one of all happened over the past few days. I believe that without pain one cannot fully appreciate joy. Well that held true for me yesterday no doubt.

I have been trying to find a way to tell my mom that I wear hijab. I waited until I was absolutely sure I'd stick with it since why bother causing myself such grief when I could whip it off in a month or so. Anyway I had the perfect opportunity to tell her in my own goofy way that I normally reveal bad news. As an aside I loved the part in Steel Magnolias where they're in Dolly Parton's hair salon chit chattin' away and one woman tells the story of how this gay man goes to his parents house and tells them , "mom, dad......I am dying and have 1 month to live". After they fall apart and start to wail he says, "just kidding I'm gay!". lol.

Last Friday I was at my local Stop n Shop standing in the cashier line behind a woman who was in her late 60's early 70's. Very proper woman with perfect hair, perfect makeup, etc. She had scowled at me when we passed each other by a few times up and down the aisles so when I planted my cart behind her in the line she gave me a look to kill and said to me, "why don't you just go home where you belong???" Quick witted as I am I replied, "well if you'd hurry up I WOULD go home...I don't like being here anymore than you do!!" (I'm kidding....I'm totally not quick witted but when I started to wear hijab I thought up all these nice lil retorts though this was thankfully the first time I ever had to use one. )

So............I used this as an excuse to tell my mom. I called her up, told her the story and without commenting too too much she ended our converstation a wee bit abruptly with that voice that every daughter knows which conveys total disappointment. I didn't call her for a few days because I wanted her to calm down and quite frankly I am 42 years old and have had enough of the "Im so disappointed in you" speeches in my life so far.

Well....yesterday she called me and said, "do you have a minute?". SURE!!! lol. She told me that she went to get her nails done and who did her nails but this girl named Ayesha who wore that thing on her head like you said you do. I just wanted to get my toenails painted but the woman insisted on massaging my feet as well. After she painted them she asked if I'd like a 15 minute neck massage on the house. I've never felt so pampered and loved in all my life!!!

So that's my nice hijab story. :) It was painful the first few days because I felt rejected by my mother for the umpteenth time in my life but when she told me that story I could not help but think that this was a huge sign from above telling me not only is it right for me to cover my head but not to worry about other people's opinion.....He'll take care of all that. :)
Assalam alaykum,

One of my alltime favorite sites is . I just type in the mood I'm feeling and shaBAM, out comes a few pages of art describing it. Today I'm daydreaming of where I want to travel to within the US once my husband gets here inshallah and above is the picture that describes that dreaming perfectly. As a little girl ( and even an adult some days) I'd pick these up from my lawn, make a wish and blow..................little did I knew I was sending weed seeds off to whoevers poor unsuspecting lawn was nearby. lol
The reason I love the picture is that it represents hope of course but also represents the slow growth it takes to be able to even have the chance of that hope. This plant had to grow out of the ground and survive rain, evident by the water droplets on it. That's how I feel right now. We've only half grown from the ground I think and by the time he hits Logan airport he'll have those water droplets showing the struggle we went through. Maybe it will be from the tears of missing me. Maybe from the sweat of worry and fret, not knowing what our future holds. Either way it will be well earned.
assalam alaykum

It's rainy and gloomy here today. Not much personal stuff to talk about so I thought I'd present an article I saw on the upcoming forum between Pope Benedict XVI and various leaders of Islam from around the world. My thoughts are that this could be really really good or really really bad. lol

Pope approves permanent Catholic-Muslim forum
Richard Owen of The Times in Rome
In a ground breaking move Pope Benedict XVI has approved the setting up of a permanent Catholic-Muslim Forum - the first of its kind - which is to hold its inaugural summit meeting in the Vatican in November.
The historic move follows three days of talks in Rome between Vatican officials and a Muslim delegation representing 138 Muslim scholars who last year wrote an open letter to the Pope and other Christian leaders calling for dialogue, a move inspired by Prince Ghazi bin Muhammed bin Talal of Jordan.
The Muslim initiative was a reponse to the Pope's controversial speech at Regensburg University in his native Germany in 2006, where he appeared to describe Islam as inherently violent and irrational by quoting a Byzantine Emperor. He later said he had been misunderstood, and prayed alongside an imam at the Blue Mosque in Istanbul during a visit to Turkey.
The first summit of the Catholic-Muslim Forum will take place on 4-6 November, the Vatican said, with nearly fifty delegates, and will be addressed by the pontiff. The chosen theme is "Love of God, Love of Neighbour."
A follow up conference is to be held in a Muslim country yet to be decided, according to Ali Aref Nayed, director of the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre in Amman. He said the response to the Group of 138's call for dialogue had been "incredibly positive". The aim was to "return to the roots of faith and what we have in common".
He said resentment over the Pope's Regensburg remarks was still "burning strongly in many parts of the Muslim world". The speech had been a mistake, "but everyone makes mistakes. The important thing is to correct them. This whole initiative is about healing. It is about healing the wounds of a very pained and, in many ways, destroyed world". He said the Muslim majority was not represented by a "loud, violent and cruel minority".
He appealed for the release of Chaldean Archbishop Paulos Faraj Rahho, who was kidnapped last week in Iraq, declaring: "We take this opportunity to remind our fellow Muslims that it is against the Prophet's teaching to even touch religious leaders and monks and priests. Religious leaders and religious symbols must be respected."
The first day of the November summit will focus on Christian and Muslim teachings on the obligation to love both God and one's neighbour, and the second on "human dignity and mutual respect". The third day will be a general discussion open to the public.
Last week Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, head of the Pontifical Council for Inter Religious Dialogue, attended an inter-faithconference in Cairo sponsored by Al Azhar University, seen as the intellectual centre of Sunni Islam. In a gesture toward Muslim sensitivities he issued a joint statement with Sheikh Abdel Fattah Alaam, chairman of the Al-Azhar Dialogue Committee, "strongly condemning" the "re-publication of offensive cartoons and the rising number of attacks against Islam and its Prophet".
A number of Danish dailies last week reprinted a cartoon featuring the Prophet Mohammed's head with a turban in the form of a bomb with a lit fuse. The joint statement condemned "violence, extremism and terrorism" in general, and said freedom of expression should "not be used as a pretext for offending religions, convictions, religious symbols and everything that is considered sacred."
Asked why the joint document had failed to call on Islamic rulers to make a reciprocal gesture by respecting the religious beliefs and rights of Christians in the Middle East, Father Andrea Pacini, a Vatican expert on Islam, said the issue was "delicate". He said the picture was "mixed", with some Arab countries restricting or forbidding Christian worship but others allowing the construction of new churches.
Yahya Sergio Yahe Pallavicini, deputy head of the Italian Islamic Religious Community, who attended this week's talks in Rome, said he hoped Muslims would join the Pope in "deeper dialogue on doctrine, theology and the character of religions in today's world". All religious leaders must "isolate extremists and avoid the wrong use of religion", he said.
Ali Aref Nayed said he realised that Pope Benedict was exercised about restrictions on religious freedom faced by Christians in Muslim countries, but said he hoped the Catholic-Muslim Forum would not turn into "an exchange of grievances". It should instead be a gathering in which both sides could support religious freedom "for all people".
In a written statement Abdal Hakim Murad Winter, director of Britain's Muslim Academic Trust, who took part in this week's preparatory talks, said those who believed in the one God had a responsibility to reach out to each other.
There was a widespread sense in the West "that religion brings discord rather than healing to the world," he wrote, but "the reality of engagement between believers of different traditions is overwhelmingly one of conviviality". Extremists on all sides obscured this "by using language of exclusion and contempt".
Other Muslim delegates to Rome this week were Ibrahim Kalin, director of the SETA Foundation in Ankara and Sohail Nakhooda, editor of Islamica Magazine in Jordan. The Vatican participants were Cardinal Tauran, Archbishop Pier Luigi Celata, secretary of the Council for Interreligious Dialogue, Monsignor Khaled Akasheh, head of the Council's section for relations with Muslims, Father Miguel Ayuso Guixot, President of the Pontifical Institute for Arabic and Islamic Studies, and Father Christian Troll, an expert on Islam at the Pontifical Gregorian University.

If anyone actually reads this blog......I apologize for not writing anything in a while. Updates are that my husband arrived safely in Boston on April 11, 2008, alhumdulilah. He has adjusted very well to life here and my daughters have become quite attached to him.

Someday I think I'd like to write about being a single mother. Technically I guess I'm no longer a single mom, though the only thing that has changed is that I am now married. When a single mom gets married it's not like the husband is automatically replacing the void of having a father live in the house everyday so I think there should be some term for the women who's children's fathers live elsewhere who do have a husband. My husband is a big help, as much as he is allowed to be, in that he passes time with my girls thus giving me free time to do laundry, dishes, etc. I still feel the burden though of being the sole decision maker in much of their lives.

I think I haven't written about this subject before because it's almost like letting down the wall of a dam..........once I tap into the emotional side of single motherhood I think I'd have to take about a month off not just from work but from life in general. LOL.

Anyways that is just food for thought for later writing options.

ma salaam :)
